Set 18 - Matrix Wall Board - 60" long - Includes Gears


Cogworks Set18 Matrix Wall Board is intended to be mounted to a wall by museum staff, therefore making use of existing wall space.  Additional matrix boards can be mounted side by side to create larger wall exhibits. We recommend that Matrix Wall Boards are mounted on a slight angle for ease of use. Brackets to mount Matrix Wall Boards can be fabricated by museum staff or by Cogworks at additional cost. Mounting configurations tend to differ for each application, so are best discussed at the time of purchase.

The Matrix Wall Board allows two different gear sizes to be arranged in a matrix pattern. Six hardwoods are used in making the gears that are detailed with intricate patterns and inlays for variation and interest. The gear location pins are made from brass for strength. There are three cranks or driving gears fixed to the display; making a total of six work areas. Gear creations can be joined between cranks; this encourages teamwork.

Catalog: Cog Gear Sculptures

Factory of Dreams


Factory of Dreams Wall Sculpture ~ “Factory of Dreams” kinetic energy results from cranking the driving gear handle to set other gears, or cogs, and pulleys in motion. This wall sculpture is attached to the wall via a unique and interesting magnetic system that allows the sculpture to be removed easily when required. One can create a one-of-a-kind new sculpture by altering the entire piece on a horizontal plane. This is achieved by using the tools supplied along with your own imagination! Yes, one can change the configuration of the piece to make a design of ones own; just like Hornby’s “Meccano”, The “Factory of Dreams” is made from the finest metals available; cartridge brass and stainless steel components are machined in our workshop along with all the wooden pieces. We use the best hardwoods available and they include; Walnut, Cherry, Bloodwood, Mahogony, Lacewood, Tiger Maple, Birdseye Maple, Redwood Burl, and Tiger Ash. The circumference of the sculptures matrix base is framed by Walnut with Bloodwood inlays.

Set 2 Educational Cogbox - Stainless Steel Axle Pegs


Set 2 has a large base measuring 20" by 20" and is ideal for introducing a number of important principles relative to simple machines and gears. This educational tool is intended for 1st through 4th grade students. The primary goal of Set 2 is to give the student an appreciation of gears through play. The gears may be moved around on a  matrix board, 1000's of combinations being possible. As the student manipulates the gears a basic understanding of gears follows.

The gears are made from solid cherry hardwood and the base from laminated birch hardwood. The top of the gears have a tough lacquer finish while the sliding surfaces are finished in a non-toxic low friction mineral oil. The base is 1" thick laminated birch hardwood with 20 solid cherry gears included. Set 2 features eight large 24 teeth gears and twelve smaller 12 tooth gears are included.  The axle pins are made from solid polished stainless steel. The pins are retained in the gears via a clip - no small loose parts. Two of the gears have cranks enabling students to work as a team. The base may be rejuvenated after years of service by just rubbing with 220 grit paper and reapplying food grade mineral oil. An instruction sheet is included and an activity guide is also available.
